What is the Truth about Ergun Caner?

Ergun Caner, who I call "Erogunt" Caner is being questioned for lying about his Islamic background. He is the dean of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He has made many contradictory statements about his background, which he used to promote himself and sell books. The evidence is rather overwhelming that he has exaggerated his background for personal gain.

What is sad about the whole ordeal is that Liberty University (of which I'm an alumni) did not want to open an investigation to the contradicting statements Caner made until it hit the national media. Dr. Elmer Towns tried to brush it aside by saying that Caner's contradictory statements "were not an ethical or moral issue." Interesting since in the Bible lying is a moral and ethical issue. But the news became too big for them to squash. And so in response they decided to launch an inquiry.

It seems that Liberty University is drifting farther and farther away from the truth. Mormon Glenn Beck was their speaker at graduation this year as they seek to place more importance on social issues than on the gospel itself. And now Caner, in spite of his habitual lying, is being slapped on the wrist by not having his contract extended as the dean of the seminary while at the same time being allowed to remain as a professor at the school. Truth is not in vogue at Liberty these days.

A sad day I never thought I would see come so quickly.
